The wife of  the Oyo State governor, Mrs Florence Ajimobi,  on Sunday urged women in the state to embrace righteousness and  diligence in the discharge of their  civic responsibilities.

Ajimobi  made the plea at a programme organised by the Women Intercessory Network (WIN)  in Ibadan on Sunday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that WIN is a  quarterly prayer and fasting session   organised by the governor’s wife.

Ajimobi  also urged the women  to  move closer to God if they  desired favour.

“Expecting favour from God without being hardworking, prayerful and obedient to the commandments of God would end up in vanity.

“ We must be prepared for the favour by obeying the commandments.

“Government is an authority ordained by God and we must perform our civic responsibilities by paying our taxes and obeying the laws of the land. No one gets favour through mischief,’’ she said.

She also counselled the women on their basic responsibilities in their  homes, saying they must train their wards, love their partners and support them in  prayers.

Without fulfilling our  responsibilities, being prepared and prayerful  and obeying God’s commandment, it would be difficult to attain our desired success,’’ she said.

Some Christian clerics,  Mary Popoola,  Deborah Ayokunle and  Elizabeth Ayodele,  in their separate messages  also  urged women to be more prayerful.

NAN  reports  that the programme featured praise worship, sermon, scripture reading and special prayer sessions.
